Mixed Media Card for Susan K Weckesser
I use paint on my art journal pages all time, and I thought why not use the same techniques to create a card? I think the painted panel makes a fun and dynamic background for the focal fox image.
Here's how I made it:
1 Create a painted background by swiping paint across a piece of card with a baby wipe. Add some white areas with a credit card.
2 Stencil the loops with Susan's Doodle stencil, followed by the X design in red. When dry stencil the numbers in modelling paste.
3 Add blobs of grey paint with the rubber end of a pencil and doodle over them when dry. Stamp the Going Wild wording over the background repeatedly as shown, using just the arrow part around the edges.
4 Colour the fox with pens (I used Graph It markers) and add him on 3D foam pads.
5 Mat the panel to grey card. Stencil a border with grey ink onto a card blank and glue the panel in place above.
Thanks for stopping by today - see you soon I hope.
